Ivana Dizdar



Ivana Dizdar is a historian of art and design whose work explores intersections among visual culture, geopolitics, science, and law. Her dissertation examines French 19th-century representations of the Arctic, investigating how painting, panoramas, and decorative art portrayed and informed travel, exploration, and cross-cultural encounters in the polar north. Also active as a curator, Dizdar has worked on exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Museum of Arts and Design (New York), and Qatar Museums (Doha), as well as the 59th Venice Biennale. She holds master’s degrees in art history and curatorial studies from the Sorbonne and Columbia University. Dizdar is a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto and a Visiting Student Research Collaborator at Princeton, where she is working on a project with Professor Rachael DeLue.
